I've been kayaking for 10 years and have paddled from Richmond to Washington D.C. (700-mile round trip mostly as day trips). I am presently circumnavigating the Chesapeake Bay and have completed the western side and about half the Eastern Shore (mostly in week-long trips). I also sea kayaked in Canada, Maine, Alaska and the Florida Keys and Everglades. I paddle with Euro, wing, and Greenland paddles. Presently I am retired and I work part-time for Prince William County Parks and Recreation teaching their paddlesports programs, classes, and camps.
Epic 18X Sport, NDK Romany Classic, Perception Whip-it, Grumman whitewater canoe, and 4 stand up paddle boards (too many boats, not enough time)
ACA instructor for kayak, SUP, and adaptive paddlesports. I am an event organizer for this group, and also the Organizer for Lake Ridge Park Paddlers http://www.meetup.... web site at www.baymysticpaddling.com.
Great group. Interesting people. Beautiful paddling locations. Very active during the paddling season and some of us even paddle all winter.
